To get to my basement canning storage, I have to go to the back door, put on my outside shoes, walk through the weather to the big heavy cellar door, and go down the steps to the basement. I go down there multiple times a day, actually. The freezers are down there, the empty jars, so many things.
I'm just really thrilled to have this sample collection of canned goods right here in my kitchen. The other night when I remembered there were some Christmas gingerbread cookies in the freezer yet, I plucked a quart of applesauce off the shelf to go with them. Easy peasy. No outside shoes required.
